Why can't I tick the box to let people know

  Pappyon 15:21 06 Mar 2003

Why is it that when I try and tick a thread I have started to show that I am satisfied that my query has been resolved, nothing happens. I have to repeat the action three or four times over the course of a couple of days.

This gives the impression that I have buggered off and don't care whether responders know that my question has been resolved to my satisfaction or otherwise.

I normally report back to thank people for assistance, but I don't think that is enough.

Remember you have to tick and click on the resolved box, not the post response and you cannot tick resolved and post a message with the same click.

I do click on the resolved box after ticking the small square box and when I check back later the tick has not been applied, and I have to keep coming back time after time.

With respect I don't click on "post response"
I am not talking about posting a message to the forum. I mean when I want to let everybody who has resoonded to my post or posts that my problem has been resolved to my satisfaction.

I thought the same thing had happened to me and then I realised I was getting a cached page back,not a new one,until I reloaded page.

The same thing must be happening to me as to bruno. I realise now if I shut the PC Advisor web page down and come back later, the ticks that I have added are indeed there. I have been practicing in the "View my Posts" after seeing bruno's post.

No wonder I tell people here that I'm thick!!

As soon as you have ticked with the green ticky thing and clicked resolved, once you are back to the main page just click 'REFRESH', and lo and behold problem solved.
